Toronto 2019: Knives Out

Knives Out may be a murder mystery comedy but no stone goes unturned in what is certainly one of the best laugh riots in 2019. Crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is discovered dead on the morning after his 85th birthday party.  We don’t know whether he was killed or whether he did the deed himself.  What we do know is that members of the Thrombey family are being questioned by Lt.

The Red Sea Diving Resort: A True Story

Chris Evans leads a cast of Mossad operatives in The Red Sea Diving Resort as they work to rescue Ethiopian Jews and bring them to Israel. I would imagine that more people know the story behind Operation Moses or Operation Solomon more so than Operation Brothers.  Regardless, this film is a good one to watch as things play out on screen.  Even though we have an idea of what is going to happen, there’s certainly…

Captain America: Civil War – The Road to Endgame

With Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel mini-series that had huge ramifications across the universe finally comes to the big screen.  However, it’s not quite the same as the original comic book series given that Fox owns the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. That said, it’s still a really awesome film. Just as in the comics, Steve Rogers’ Captain America (Chris Evans) is pitted against Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).  Cap is…

It’s been some two years following the Battle of New York and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is living in Washington, D.C.  It is a quiet life for the man out of time.  He also continues to adjust to this new reality.  He’s become friends with military veteran Sam Wilson…

The Avengers – The Road to Endgame

Marvel’s The Avengers is the team-up movie that we’ve been waiting for and it’s absolutely everything we wanted it to be. Loki wants to rule Earth.  There’s really no other way to put it.  After promising to turn over the Tesseract to the Chitauri, they will provide him with an army.  Oh Loki, don’t go making promises you can’t keep.  It probably will not end well. Back on Earth, Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) is continuing his…
